Your Time to Season

Your time to season has had its season,

your useful bits have now long gone;

you struggle to rhyme without your reason,

the line in the sand has been overdrawn.

But in your structure, I see a spark

of a cunning, active, tactile mind;

your sunset days will leave their mark,

in beauty you’ll rest, when life’s resigned.


These chives have lost their primary purpose – and yet, in their decline, they are still beautiful. ย Don’t you agree?

    I think they look beautiful too! Loving how we can still see beauty, even as things are ending up their season in the garden. Thanks, Melody!
